      If you like planes, the Air Zoo in Kalamazoo is on that route. :thumbup:

      Henry Ford Museum is also nice if you've never been there.

      Benton Harbor has a nice beach if the weather is nice.

      Or look towards Touareg/Q5 TDI. But I am biased too. :P

      I like the GC Ecodiesel (drove almost a thousand miles in one) but it's well known to have some bugs.

      Sure, though she drives the Boxster more than the S4. One time though I left in the pickup and I had her keys accidentally in my pocket and she had to come meet me to get her keys - she took the S4...

      I wouldn't go so far to say it was rigged or padded, but I do think they had the narrative down before putting a single car on the track. They got what they were looking for.

      Haven't watched the video yet, but I'm guessing the RS3 is not in its element at the track.

      I drove an RS3 last week on some beautiful Bavarian backroads and LOVED IT. It has a ton of character,...

      Clearly the best answer is to buy an S4 and a Boxster S.

      Seriously, I don't think there is a single vehicle less than $75k that I'd trade this combo for.

      I'd take my S4 back about 75 years and crush the field in the Indy500. :laugh:

      It's a bit more practical (full 5-seater with no interior battery intrusion.) It's styled like a regular car, it doesn't scream "hybrid". It has a more enthusiast oriented drive (sport suspension,...

      Eh, I wouldn't go that far.

      I've shopped a few and they have their own reliability issues, plenty with minor electrical problems and stuff failing before it should - including mine.

      These...

      This post (as do many of yours) screams millennial. That's not necessarily a slam, it's just interesting. You wear it on your sleeve.

      I guess it's a different way of thinking.

      For my generation (I'm 35), it would be an embarrassment to live at home after 21. When you turned 18, there was a drive, a desire to move out of the...

      Yeah, from what I've seen these cars will eventually cost you around $18k-$20k in most cases, at least you should count on that.

      I spent more up front for a car which already had IMS/RMS/Clutch...

      Maybe those of us with good experiences aren't as vocal about it?

      If I wanted something slower, less efficient, and less enjoyable to drive I guess I could have gotten an RX450h. :confused:

      In real life, the mileage is very different. I average between 30 and 40 mpg in the TDI and 22-26 in the 2.0T.

      Plus the TDI is a rocket in comparison (0-60 in the 5's).

      The TDI gives you SQ5...

      Measuring realtime tailpipe emissions is a pretty complicated concept that currently requires thousands of dollars of equipment to do. Long story short, I highly doubt it's something that could be...

      Follow up question - does this bother people?

      It really bugged me on past Subarus and Mazdas I've had. I hate door dings and I hate it if the car feels like a cheap tin can.
